Sculpture Walk

November 4-11
Willie McTell Trail
Statesboro
Preview Event: Nov. 4, Time TBD

The artworks featured in the Sculpture Walk were created by students in Casey Schachner’s 3D Art & Design Foundations courses.

In this collection of works, students were challenged to use a two-dimensional square piece of aluminum to create a three-dimensional object. This was achieved by cutting the square into multiple facets that cannot be removed but instead folded and shaped in multiple directions creating a “sculpture in the round.” The students are studying how point, line, plane, and volume all work together to interact with their surroundings. This is further enhanced through the use of surface considerations and, in this case specifically, color.

Each steel sculpture has been powder-coated in a vibrant color to help preserve the sculpture for years of enjoyment.

Join us on Nov. 4 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. as we kick off the Sculpture Walk at the Business Innovation Group (BIG) in Downtown Statesboro. Place a bid on your favorite piece through a virtual auction, which runs the length of the exhibition ending on Nov. 11 at 6 p.m.
